I am still able to offer telephone and video call sessions using WhatApp and zoom. I am offering reduced rates for those that are affected my the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hi my name is Charlie and I offer you a warm welcome to my Counselling Directory page. I understand how daunting it can feel when searching for a counsellor so it is important that you find someone that feels right for you. I hope I can help you with your search.
What I offer
I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore the difficulties that you might be facing. Sometimes in life we can feel depressed, anxious or we are just not coping with things as well as we would like to. Counselling is an opportunity where you can begin to understand what might have led you to this place and what might help you to move forward in your life.I believe that everyone is a unique individual and that each person has the ability to resolve their own difficulties when provided with the right environment.
I work from an integrative approach, which means I draw from a range of theories that I can adapt to which best suits you. As humans we are primarily motivated by the need for contact with others and to form relationships. Therefore my core approach is person-centred, incorporating object relations.
My style is collaborative that offers encouragement and empathy as together I would like to help you understand your difficulties by utilising elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Theory, Transference, Jungian, and Developments in Neuroscience.
I can offer both talking and creative interventions that will allow you to explore the parts of your life you want to change. Counselling is a place where I can help equip you with the necessary tools to implement the changes you want to make.
Children and Adolescents
I am passionate about the wellbeing of children and adolescents as many young people are struggling with how they feel. They may be having problems at school, with Friends, with Family or they may be feeling anxious, low, frightened or angry and need someone to talk to , they might find it difficult to open up to people they know. Counselling offers a safe environment for them to express their feelings and perhaps understand what may have caused them to feel this way.
Depending on the child’s age, the development and situation, there are a number of interventions that I can offer to help them express their feelings. The use of play, creative arts, and sand tray work, can all have a positive impact on the child. Reading stories can also be beneficial by giving the child the opportunity to talk about the feelings of specific characters which, as a result, can help with understanding emotions while encouraging discussion of personal feelings.
